Nellie was born in Guntersville, Alabama, the daughter of the late Tommy and Edna Duran Wright. She was an office manager at AEDC for 30 years before retirement and was an active member of Bell Springs Methodist Church. Nellie loved painting, gardening, cooking, collecting antiques, was active in her community, and was “an absolute southern lady.” Nellie, along with her late husband, Charles Brantley, were very involved in and enjoyed working with the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeder’s and Exhibitor’s Association.

In addition to her parents and husband, Nellie was also preceded in death by one sister-in-law, Ada Wright; and one brother-in-law, Paul Halmontaller. She is survived by her brother, John H. Wright of Manchester; sister, Minnie Halmontaller of Crossville; numerous nieces and nephews; and many extended family members.

The family would like to thank the management, nurses and staff of McArthur Manor and Avalon Hospice for their kindness, compassion, and respect they have shown during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Bell Springs Methodist Church Building Fund. Manchester Funeral Home was honored to serve the Brantley family. The Scoop sends our deepest sympathy to the Brantley Family.
